ANNAPOLIS, Md., May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert G. Graw, Jr., M.D., CEO of Righttime Medical Care joined more than 700 urgent care professionals recently in Las Vegas for the national conference of the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA).
At UCAOA's conference, Dr. Graw networked with colleagues and learned about industry-specific issues affecting patients. The experience will benefit patients of Righttime Medical Care and the communities it serves.
"Our management team traveled to the UCAOA conference, where they participated in and contributed to educational sessions and leadership meetings," said Dr. Graw. "We are helping guide the field of urgent care medicine as it emerges from a loose group of medical providers to an organized, focused system of health care professionals, providing services when primary care physicians are not available."
Righttime Medical Care and urgent care centers across the country provide access to medical care for acute illnesses and injuries beyond the availability or scope of typical primary care practices or retail clinics. Urgent care helps improve both access to care and proper utilization of health care resources.
"It is anticipated that urgent care will become a major component of providing medical care to Americans, as access to basic care becomes increasingly limited and an estimated 30 million plus uninsured Americans seek access to affordable, consistent medical care," added Dr. Graw.
